The 2006 gold proof one pound coin features one of Northern Ireland's most famous landmarks, the magnificent Egyptian Arch Bridge. This is the third £1 coin in a series of four bridge designs by Edwina Ellis, each paying homage to one of the four countries of the United Kingdom.
Struck in 22 carat gold to a proof finish, this one pound coin is British legal tender and is exempt from Capital Gains Tax. This coin comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
The British Bridge £1 coins are the first gold proof one pound coins to be offered as individual pieces. This is the third gold proof £1 coin in a series of four designs featuring bridges within each of the four home nations. The Egyptian Arch railway bridge is situated on the Belfast to Dublin line, the bridge received its name after locals commented on the resemblance to the Egyptian Pharaoh's head-dress.
The gold £1 coin weighs almost three times the weight of a sovereign. Mintage is limited to 1,500 and each coin comes in a presentation box with a certificate of authenticity.
On 28 March 2017, the circulated round pound was replaced by the 12 sided £1 coin. On the 15 October the round £1 coin will cease to be legal tender. Read more about the pound coin in our blogs:
